Sergeant Ronald Dalphonse. (The Bulletin Notes).

Sergeant Ronald Dalphonse of the Plymouth, New Hampshire, Police Department received a call to assist at an unknown medical emergency. Upon arrival, Sergeant Dalphonse learned that the male patient possibly was depressed and suicidal. While emergency medical staff attended the patient, the patient reached into a bag and withdrew a loaded pistol. A struggle ensued between medical personnel, Sergeant Dalphonse, and the patient. Sergeant Dalphonse was able to jump behind the patient and employ a tactical hold to deprive him of the strength and agility to retain the weapon. The pistol was secured without injury to the patient or the medical personnel. Sergeant Dalphonse's quick thinking and action prevented serious injury to the medical staff or the patient.
